Now that the weather has improved and spring actually seems to be here, I hope everyone has been able to get out on their bikes.
Cycling UK wants us all to participate in the World’s Biggest Bike Ride. It will be part of Bike Week which is from 30 May to 5 June and they ask you to commit to riding your bike on 30 May 2021. To read all about it and get involved follow the link: https://www.cyclinguk.org/bikeweek/virtual-events There are a lot of events and if you go for a ride on 30 May and log the ride you will be doing your part to show how many people ride their bikes. Any distance will count.
I attended a web meeting today regarding the former Wisley airfield cycle consultation. They are promoting cycling and sustainable transport in a big way. The meeting this time was mostly about the provision for cycling within the settlement and routes to nearby stations and towns. One of the routes was to Byfleet/New Haw station and I had to report the sad news that our battle doesn’t seem to be over yet in regard to Muddy Lane. We had an email from Daniel last week saying that Mr Salaman and Mr Garland have been given leave to Appeal a small legal matter in the High Court’s decision which was issued back on 10 July 2020. The hearing date is 7/8th July. My response was “Oh Nooooooo.” Anyway I will let you know the outcome in due course.
Back to the web meeting. G-Bug were very interested in getting some improvements made on Old Lane so there would be a safe and quick commute to Effingham Junction for residence of the settlement. The project seems to prefer access to the train to London and Guildford via West Horsley and Stoke d’Abernon stations since much of the routes are already in place. To get improvements on Old Lane would take major expenditure. They spoke of quiet lanes which are being sign posted in the UK and they would be lovely for us if ever they got in place and people adhered to the idea. We discussed secure parking at stations which we all know is of major concern.
If you would like to see information from Highways England regareding the A3/ M25 junction 10 , you can see it on https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/UKHIGHWAY/bulletins/2cbd8d6.
